Return To Buckeye Hills Buckeye, AZ

One of my favorite places to boondock in Arizona is the Buckeye Hills Recreation area which I reviewed a year ago here:  Buckeye Hills Review .  This time I camped the Rec area for thirteen days although I cheated once and drove into Buckeye itself after about a week to get groceries and workout at the Anytime Fitness there.  The last time I camped there the weather was just about ideal with daytime in the mid-80's and nighttime in the mid-50's.  This year, however the temperatures were about fifteen degrees above normal during the last half of my stay there so I eventually decided to move to a nearby Escapee RV park so I could get an electrical hookup to run the Tank's AC during the high-90's afternoons.  I'll write up a review of the Escapee park in a separate post.  Here's a few of the pictures from this year's Buckeye Hills experience:


Earlier rains had caused the wildflowers to flower in the area.
A typical campsite at Buckeye Hills with a stone fire ring.
A more "formal" campsite with it's own covered picnic table.
A "tiny" white Tank (left center) at it's site at the base of a hill.
